Nice evening staff was helpfully and polite food was good. Have not been down to the restaurant since covid. Thought the menu was better this time our friends enjoyed them self's and commented how nice the Grove is. We'll be back.
PS, Sat & Sun breakfast would be nice again?

It's clear that there are new staff in their early stages of learning. Not sure there was much direction given to them as they went about their duties.

The two black coffees were not barista coffees which was extremely disappointing they tasted like Nescafé which for a restaurant is not good.

Not much change on the menu in a very long time, having to pay extra for vegetables or salad with a main meal a bit disappointing also.
It is a lovely venue, just needs a bit more on the menu to lift it up

The staff were lovely and very friendly. I can’t say much about the food as it was horrible. The chips were cold and had no flavor. The chicken burger was bland and the coke tasted flat. Will give them another go to see if it was just a bad night however, it didn’t leave a good impression.

Meals were nice but it was a bit disappointing that everything was extra, schnitzel and chips was )22 but salad was extra and there was a $10 cakeage fee which i think is disgusting given we supplied the cake!
The atmosphere was nice but the ‘extras’ were disappointing
